This is a creamy, opaque, high shine black. As others have said, it chips horribley no matter what HE base or top coat I use. I don't have luck with any polish lasting long on my natural nails, but this chips off much faster than higher quality polishes.
I don't use this as a regular polish. I use it when I want to experiment with my Konad stamping and practice getting my technique perfect and for seeing how clearly each stamp actually is. I use this color to test with before using my expensive Konad black stamping polish and it saves me a lot of money. I also use it when I am frankening, if I want to darken a polish just slightly I do so one drop at a time to achieve the perfect color. This is a lovely black though, opaque and shiny in two coats. But for longevity and a full manicure I use Orly Liquid Leather.
For 99 cents, this is a good nail polish. It applies very evenly and leaves a very creamy, opaque finish. I would highly enjoy this polish, if it weren't for the chipping. Only a few hours after I apply it, I find lots of chipping. While I love the color, application, and price, it's not worth constantly having to reapply it.
Great formula for the price! Goes on pretty smooth and is opaque for me in 2 coats. Not the most chip resistant, but I get bored of the same color after a few days anyways. My only problem w/ this, is the brush; I find it fairly difficult to work with because I have a hard time getting a neat even line by my cuticles and I prefer the Megalast brush.
I've used Wet n Wild black polish since I was a baby goth at 12. I still have at least one of these on hand at any one time. It's deep in color, very opaque, not streaky and very shiny when it dries. Gripper, one (sometimes two) layer of black, any decorations I want, and top coat. I've used this over my acrylic nails and have had amazing results with it, too. POWERHOUSE!
Consistency is great. The color is great. The price is spectacular (50 cents if I'm lucky - otherwise the original price is 99 cents)
However, for 99 cents, it does chip pretty quickly, even with a top coat. But for some reason, this is the only black nail polish I buy! Love the price and while the wear is short, I think it looks great.
Pretty much opaque with one coat (two is best though). However, beware of the insane chipping, even if you are wearing a good basecoat and topcoat.
Would I buy again? Definitely! I love this nail polish! It's the perfect shade of pure black, and it has nice opaqueness. You just need 1 or 2 coats. It has a great brush that's the perfect size for me. The only con is that the writing wears off after a while, but clear nail polish can prevent that. Other than that, I love everything about it, especially the price. :)
First of all, I don't buy black nail polish to wear on its own - it just looks too stark against my pale skin. I buy black nail polish as 'underwear' for other colors I own that have a transluscent base. So I don't have alot of demands when it comes to a plain black creme; only that it applies well and lasts at least a few days. WnW Black Creme applies amazingly well, it really is that perfect creamy consistency and is very opaque. However, the lasting power just isn't there for me. Even when worn layered under another polish (with top and base coat) I find that it chips within 24 hours (I usually get at least three to four days of wear out of a manicure; more if I'm lucky). Most of the other Wild Shine polishes have better lasting power on me but this one just doesn't hold up :( I will be trying other black cremes (SH Black Out is next) and hopefully will find one that works better with my body chemistry.
This is an awesome black creme polish for the price, I mean come on 99 cents? You can't beat that! The formula is good, it's not too runny & it's not too thick, it's perfect and you only need one coat to reach full opacity. I'm not a huge fan of the brush, but for 99 cents I'm not complaining haha. continued >>
